The MS-20 is one of Korg's most iconic synthesizers and boasts a thick sound with aggressive filters and patching for limitless sonic possibilities, which is why it has enticed synth enthusiasts since 1978. And with the Korg Kronos, users can replicate the exact sound of this synth via the dedicated MS-20EX engine.

The use of Korg's component modelling technology means that the classic MS-20 sound is faithfully replicated but also dramatically expands the patch panel functionality.

Here, you can modulate filters with audio-rate oscillators, turn audio inputs into controls signals and tweak a number of other additional parameters, which are not available on the original MS-20.

This flexible, semi-modular virtual analog synthesizer is just one of nine sound engines available on the Korg Kronos, which comes in three sizes - 88-, 73- and 61-key.
